Living Stages Catalysts are committing to raising $100 each (or more!) by getting ten friends to donate $10 (or more!) each over the course of ten days in June.

Our stretch goal is to raise $10,000 in order to coordinate our 2016 Forum Theatre Convergence -- an opportunity to bring together theatre teams for a full weekend of training, rehearsal, and interactive forum performances on the topics of housing and transit justice. The Forum Theatre Convergence is slated for November 18-20.

Our primary method of theatre is based on the work of Brazilian theatre artist and activist Augusto Boal, author of Theatre of the Oppressed. In the words of Boal, our goal is "to turn non actors into actors, in the theatre and society." We work with marginalized communities to create interactive theatre about their own experiences, and to put these stories on the stage to invite audiences to stop the course of the play, step onto the stage, and try their hand at acting out possible solutions to change the course of the play. Theatre as a rehearsal for reality!

Funds raised will support coordination and facilitation of the project, artist stipends, and support for community participants including: food, transportation and bus tickets, t-shirts, and stipends for public performances.

The Living Stages Catalyst that reaches the highest number of individual donors will be honored with our 2016 Catalyst Trophy, and photo will be featured on social media in appreciation of this contribution to our work!
